Currently on view at Croy Nielsen, Berlin is “Office Nature Body Pattern,” a solo exhibition by Nina Beier. The title of the exhibition is conceived with the help of an Online keyword generator devised to assist stock photographers in tagging their images with easily graspable labels. A pair of frames feature patterns not as we usually encounter them, but rather made up of actual objects: neckties, clocks, foxtail key rings, scissors, and leggings with an imitation of marble printed upon them. Like stock imagery, these patterns teeter on the edge between deep symbolism and an emptiness of meaning. A work produced in collaboration with Simon Dybbroe Møller features grow lights radiating pairs of office plants from a defunct bank, rescued and nurtured in an eternal summer.
“Office Nature Body Pattern” is on view through February 22, 2014.
